SEAM Block Party!

SEAM is celebrating summer at Alewives Fabrics with a BLOCK PARTY!  Free and open to all!  Sunday, August 4th from 1:00 to 4:00 we'll be making "St. Louis Sixteen Patch" blocks. The Sixteen Patch is a very easy block, even for a beginner.  If you've never sewn up a quilt block before, but always wanted to try, we'll help you get a couple made at the meeting.  Bring two fat quarters with you (one red and one white) and we'll stitch up these blocks for a charity quilt (or two... or three!).   Bring your own machine or use one of ours here at the shop. Rotary cutters, mats, rulers and irons will be available to use, but feel free to bring your own tools, too.  We'll be serving refreshments, and it's also the last day of Alewives' 20% off Midsummer Clearance Sale. See you there!
 PS...  Don't forget that we'll be doing show and tell, too!  Bring your latest project, a favorite fabric, a handy tool... anything you'd like to share with your fellow sewing enthusiasts and artists of Maine!
